Audi plans to send an autonomous TTS up Pike’s Peak at this September. The car, developed with the Stanford University Electronics Research Laboratory, is festooned with sensors and crammed with computer gear. It’ll use GPS, accelerometers, gyroscopes, and more to feel its way up the 12-mile course without a driver—at race speeds. It’ll be the first time a robo car has driven the course at more than 25 miles per hour. The car can be shut off remotely if it decides to veer off the course and hunt for spectators. And they have Tom Selleck on standby, just in case. The guys over at Wired Autopia took a ride in the robo car as it careened around the dirt course at 40 mph. Check out the video.
